WEAVER’S FOLLY is an entertaining read with a pretty fresh premise. Aside from the brilliant futuristic setting and elves being “out of the closet” so to speak, I loved the slight allusions to Tolkien and his writings interspersed in the plot.

For a book with good writing and a distinct voice, REALM FM was a terrible disappointment. With a finale that rendered most of the characters useless, I was left wondering why a book that started out so fun soured so badly.
Everything from the description to the cover of THE ELDRITCH HEART grabbed me immediately. I knew I had to read it. The cover, with its eerie, green heart called to me, as did the back matter that hinted at dangerous politics and a forbidden love between a princess and her handmaiden.
With a name like COLT HARPER – ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT, I figured the book was going to be completely horrible or absolutely amazing. So which one did it end up being? It was somewhere in the middle. I ended up loving the ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT, but it did take some time to get there.
I mainly decided to read this book because the title, THE LAST DEATH WORM OF THE APOCALYPSE sounded like an awesome name for a death metal band. Upon completion of the book, was not disappointed in my rash decision.
MUDDY WATERS is set in a world where the boundaries between world have been taken down or thinned and an influx of supernaturals have come creating new rules, prejudices, and realities that humans and “Others” have to live with.
In HATSHEPSUT’S COLLAR by A.W. Exley, sequel to NEFERTITI’S HEART, a traitor to the crown forces Cara Devon and Nathaniel Lyons to St. Petersburg in order to clear the Lyons name, and along the way they encounter airships, pirates, Russian prostitutes, and even dragons. In addition to supernatural adventure, the book wants to be erotic romance, but in this case the two genres don’t blend together. The latter isn’t my scene, so I found the second half of the story, where the international espionage intrigue comes to the front, a lot more entertaining.
